I was born in a small red house in the mountains of Vermont, a place that I discovered a love for photography in the natural landscapes within the surrounding areas that I explored. I grew up to be a travel junkie — making my way from Vermont to California, Arizona, and back again. My passion grew from photographing the stillness within landscapes and wildlife to the beautiful movement in moments of our everyday lives.

As your photographer, I want to be more than just a vendor – my hope is that we come out of our experience together as new lifelong friends! I aim to tell your story by documenting those grand moments, along with the more quiet and intimate pieces of your life. I want to capture you as your true self — all the epic stories, laughs, and special memories that you will fondly look back upon.

I only book 20 weddings per year so that I can focus on building meaningful relationships with the amazing couples that I work with. I offer a complimentary engagement session with most wedding packages as a way for us to get to know each other, to help you get comfortable in front of the camera, and to have a FUN adventure together before your wedding day! I also LOVE to travel, so if you’re planning a celebration outside of New England, don’t be shy to get in touch today!

hi friend, i'm 

hi friend,



"I want all individuals, couples and families to see themselves in all the authentically beautiful and unique ways that make them whole. "

I LOVE to travel and some of my favorite places I’ve visited include Sedona, Lake Tahoe, Costa Rica, and Paris!


Speaking of fun times in Costa Rica… I had an appendectomy there and though it wasn’t the highlight of my vacation, I do get to say I left a piece of myself in another country!


When I'm not shooting weddings on the weekends, you might find me hiking or skiing one of the many Vermont mountain peaks. My goal is to one day hike the Long Trail from start to finish!


I have recently discovered a passion for house plants and gardening, which has been a bit of a dangerous hobby for my wallet but this year I grew two cucumbers so it was worth it.


I used to be in a Beatles cover band with my brother!  We clearly made it far in the Burlington music scene, playing at a total of four (free) shows.


The Fun Facts

you might be surprised to know

If you love being outside and exploring new places.
If you crave the magical golden hour for your photos, and are cool with me being your third wheel during that romantic sunset.
If you are okay with bad jokes, or can maybe teach me some new ones.
If you are down to throw on some boots under your wedding dress and adventure in the snow.
If you aren’t afraid to get goofy and laugh, possibly while shoving wedding cake in each other’s faces.
If you are open to being spontaneous and creative while taking portraits that are a bit less ‘posed’, and a little more natural.
If you are cool with me geeking out over photography things, especially when I get that first epic shot.

Sound like a match? You know what to do!

we might be a good fit...

kind words

Amelia was able to recommend the shoot location, coordinated with the property (Shelburne Farms), and took us to three different sites to capture a variety of shots. I was nervous about going through the wedding shoot process (hair, makeup, etc.) without any bridesmaids around to help, but Amelia has an eye for detail and captured the event beautifully (and in freezing cold temperatures, too!). She was fun, friendly, and clearly passionate about her work, and we received the proofs in just a week — even though it was over the New Year’s holiday. We loved them! I recommend her wholeheartedly.
